Is 2022 the year you take on a charity challenge? Perhaps you’ve needed a reason to start that couch to 5k programme, or maybe Mount Snowdon has been on your bucket list for some time.

Whether it’s a bungee jump, a cycling challenge, or a walk in the park, you can conquer a fear, discover a new passion, or simply have fun with friends, all while raising money and awareness for an award-winning water charity in Africa.

Charity challenges can be done solo or with friends, work colleagues or your community. And it couldn’t be easier. 

Step 1: Choose your challenge

Decide what you'd like to do and do your research. Recruit friends to join you and make it a team activity. Make sure you enlist the support of a reputable facilitator if needed.

Step 2: Logistics

Choose a date that will work for you and your potential sponsors. Remember to consider weather conditions and travel arrangements, and make sure you leave plenty of time to train and fundraise. Now you can save the date, and book your challenge.

Step 3: Spread the word

Now that you're committed, it's time to tell the world. Set up a fundraising page on GoFundMe and tell your story. Use social media to document your training and preparation for the challenge and ask your networks to help spread the word.

Step 4: Challenge time

You've trained and you've fundraised. Now is the hard part - and that's doing your challenge! Make sure you're well rested and prepared, and follow any guidance from your facilitators. If you can, document your challenge with photos.

Step 5: It's done!

Give yourself a pat on the back, because you did it! Now is the time to take a breather and celebrate your achievements. You conquered your challenge

Step 6: Donate

Make sure you thank your donors and sponsors and update them on your challenge and how much was raised. If you used GoFundMe, we'll receive your donations straight to our bank account. Do get in touch with us and send us photos and reflections from your charity challenge!
